Update for Chromecast with Google TV
Do you have a Chromecast with Google TV? Then we have good news, because from now on a software update for the device is available. That was necessary, because the Chromecast was last updated seven months(!) ago. The update is 140MB in size and new remote control software is also available.
The update contains the May 2022 security patch. Not the most recent patch, but the Chromecast with Google TV was still running the October 2021 update. In addition, minor improvements are made, including with the WiFi and Bluetooth connection. Unfortunately, major new features are missing, although the Chromecast recently did receive a handy profiles function.
The bad news is that the streaming dongle still runs on Android 10, while the Android 12 version was made available by Google months ago. It is unclear if and when the Chromecast with Google TV will be updated to the latest software. As soon as more is known about this, you will of course read it on Android Planet.
So you can see the Update Chromecast with Google TV:
Click on your profile picture at the top right and choose ‘Settings’;
- Then go to ‘System> About> System Update’;
You should see the update appear. After this you can download it and install it on your Chromecast.
